Motorcycle Accident Attorneys in Parsippany, NJ
Motorcycles have many perks: they’re fast, cost-effective, and stylish. Additionally, in New Jersey, bikers can ride through the mountains, near the beaches, or through our many miles of scenic farmland. With all that said, it’s no secret why so many people enjoy riding motorcycles. However, unfortunately, motorcycling is among the most dangerous forms of transportation, as bikers are far less protected than virtually all other vehicles on the road. If you have been seriously injured in a New Jersey motorcycle accident, you can count on the legal team at Lutz Injury Law to help you navigate your case. To discuss your situation with a Morris County personal injury attorney you can trust, contact Lutz Injury Law today.
What Are The Most Common Causes Of Motorcycle Accidents?
Motorcycle accidents can happen for several reasons, including inclement weather conditions, poorly maintained or negligently designed roads, and more. However, the most common cause of motorcycle accidents is driver negligence. Some of the most common types of driver negligence include:
- Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Driving while fatigued
- Unsafely changing lanes
- Ignoring blind spots
- Disregarding traffic lights, signs, or all other rules and regulations of the road
Do Motorcyclists have PIP?
In New Jersey, motorcyclists are not covered under personal injury protection, known as PIP. PIP is a form of no-fault insurance that covers injured motorists’ medical expenses and lost wages after an accident. However, without PIP, motorcyclists are left to pay their own way, unless they have purchased their own health insurance or collect damages from the person who caused the accident.
How Do I Win A Personal Injury Claim?
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you must hire an experienced New Jersey motorcycle accident attorney who knows how to satisfy the burden of proof. Our firm is educated and trained in obtaining and presenting the evidence needed to win you the compensation you deserve. Lutz Injury Law will personally work to recover security camera footage of the accident, witness testimony, medical documents detailing the origin and severity of your injuries, police reports, and more to prove your claim.
It is worth noting, however, that New Jersey has a statute of limitations in place that states individuals must file personal injury claims within two years of their accident. If you wait any longer than two years, you will be barred from suing. Do not let this happen. We are ready to begin the claims process today–all you have to do is ask.
When an attorney settles a claim, victims of negligence can recover damages. Essentially, there are two types of damages: economic and noneconomic. Economic damages cover monetary losses, such as medical bills, lost wages, the cost of in-home care, and more. On the other hand, noneconomic damages are compensation for things like pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, and more.
